proton waja fuel consumption

What’s the Proton X50’s tested fuel consumption?

Proton claims the X50 returns a fuel consumption figure of 6.4-litre/100 km for the range-topping 1.5 TGDi Flagship variant. But what’s the real-world fuel consumption like? We tested the Proton X50 to find out. As per usual, all tyres were inflated according to the manufacturer's recommended tyre pressure. Then the Proton X50’s 45-litre fuel tank was brimmed. Air-conditioning was set at 22 degrees Celsius in automatic mode. Driving behaviour was normal, without aggressive throttle inputs or hyp

Proton X50 fuel consumption – 6.1L/100 km, over 730 km range

The Proton X50 will very likely be the national carmaker's next model launch but don't expect it to appear in showrooms anytime soon. Proton X50 Engine Spec We all know that the new compact crossover SUV will be based on the Geely Binyue and the Malaysian market will most certainly feature the 1.5-litre 3-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine and 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. In China, the Binyue is offered with a 1.0-litre 3-cylinder turbo petrol but that's mated exclusively to a 6-speed manu

2020 Proton X70 CKD fuel consumption test, 7.6L/100km possible?

The 2020 Proton X70 CKD is powered by a 1.8-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that produces 184 PS and 300 Nm of torque, mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission (DCT). Proton claims the X70 CKD returns 7.6-litre/100 km, so we put it to the test. All tyres were inflated according to the manufacturer's recommended tyre pressure of 230 kPa (cold tyres) for all four tyres. Then the Proton X70’s 60-litre fuel tank was brimmed. Driving behaviour was as per a normal driver, accelerating and brak

Is it true that the Proton X70 suffers from high fuel consumption?

Weighing nearly 1.7 tonnes for just a five-seater SUV, the Proton X70 is the heaviest C-segment SUV. Naturally, its fuel consumption is higher than the Honda CR-V, Mazda CX-5, or even Nissan X-Trail. But how much higher? Curiously, Proton doesn’t provide any official fuel consumption data for the Proton X70, which is powered by a turbocharged 1.8-litre direct injection engine. A similarly turbocharged but 1.5-litre Honda CR-V 1.5 TC-P has a claimed fuel consumption of 7.0-litre/100 km. The equiv

Ratings – Honda CR-V’s fuel consumption, commendable score

The common knowledge about smaller capacity turbocharged engines is that they are fuel efficient. We’ve put the Honda CR-V 1.5 TC-P through the WapCar fuel consumption test to find out if it adheres to the norm. Powering the Honda CR-V is a turbocharged 1.5-litre 4-cylinder engine that makes 193 PS and 243 Nm of torque. In the 1.5 TC-P variant, drive goes to the front wheels via a CVT. Like in the Nissan X-Trail, the CVT allows the engine to spin at its optimum rev range to maximise fuel efficie

The Proton X70 Premium 2WD sold in Malaysia is powered by a 1.8-litre turbocharged direct-injection 4-cylinder petrol engine linked to a 6-speed automatic transmission.

20 years later, is the Proton Waja a dream or a nightmare?

It has been 20 years since the Proton Waja was launched. In 2000, Proton was just entering its 15th year of automotive production and during those years, they were dominating the Malaysian car market thanks to the laws that protect the national carmaker from imported rivals. At this point, all of Proton’s line-up consisted of rebadged Mitsubishis and a single rebadged Citroen. The Saga/Iswara had been chugging along since 1985 with old but reliable technology and the Wira consistently topped sal
